Montanov™ 68

Montanov™ 68 is a non-ionic, liquid crystal emulsifier based on the HLB system. Liquid crystal emulsifiers create a lamellar or bilayered structure that mimics the lipid bilayers in our stratum corneum, which may help actives or lipids from our lotions penetrate our skin easier. They also help reduce transepidermal water loss as the lotions hold more water in contact with the skin for a longer period of time.

When formulating with this emulsifier, include it in the heated oil phase of your product. Montanov™ 68 does best with a 25% oil phase, and works to emulsify natural oils as well as silicones and esters. Including a fatty alcohol like Cetyl or Cetearyl Alcohol can help increase the liquid crystal formation in the lotion. It is compatible with cationic ingredients, like Honeyquat and Cetrimonium Chloride. And it works well from pH 3 to 12, so it’s a good choice for making lotions as diverse as light facial moisturizers with AHAs and bleaching or depilatory creams.

Lotions made with Montanov™ 68 are described as being lighter and more moisturizing than those made with non-liquid crystal emulsifiers, like Polawax™ or Emulsifying Wax NF.

Formulating with Montanov™ 68

To make a lotion with Montanov™ 68, heat the emulsifier in a separate container with the oil phase to 75°C (168°F).  Pour the heated water phase into the heated oil phase and mix with a stick blender until the emulsion forms. Switch to a low shear mixer like a hand mixer or hand whisk once the emulsion forms. Add any cool down phase ingredients at 40°C (104°F).

Appearance: White flakes
Stability: Stable between pH 3 - 12

Our Customers Say...
I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.
